>>
>>10661324
Is it okay to post other jfashion related crafts here? I found a cute patterned crochet sweater tutorial from some random girl I got reccomended on YouTube and it might be good for people wanting to make casual pastel or fairy kei sweaters: https://youtu.be/v459LyAfS3w

This one also came up: https://youtu.be/V6u-SMh4y0w

>>What craft(s) can you do?
Sewing, I Can crochet but rarely do so, embroidery, basic jewelry stuff.

sew, crochet, basic knitting (also just got a flatbed knitting machine), basic embroidery, some wig making (but not styling), leathercraft, learning to spin. i also have access to an industrial embroidery machine but the software gives me a headache
would like to learn bobbin lace, point lace, silversmithing/jewelry making, and tatting. also do non /cgl/ crafts like welded metal sculpture, blacksmithing, and am dabbling a bit in woodturning but don't care much for it (i like metal more)

Unfortunately I can't help you with local shops. Hope you'll get well soon!

And an advice for future sewing projects - just buy lace on Ali (or Tao if you use it). On your local shops you'll get the same lace you buy on Ali but by ~x5 price.
>>

>What craft(s) can you do?
Sew almost everything and make jewelry from metal findings. Also not long ago I've learned how to do eva foam flowers and now I'm learn how to do flowers made of fabric.
>What is your current project?
Classic OP in style of old MMM, I make it from nice b&w cotton that I bought very cheap; off-white rectangle headdress cause Meta one that I've got is ivory and doesn't match the rest of my wardrobe.
>>
>>10661325
>What craft(s) can you do?

I'm currently working on a Google Spreadsheet where I'll be collating all the patterns and resources available, catagorised into cut or feature type e.g: JSK or partial shirring and then referencing it to which pattern is applicable

>What craft(s) can you do?
I can sew at an advanced-beginner level (my focus is cosplay, crafts like basic plushies, and in the future I want to make clothing for my wardrobe). In the future, I want to take up hand embroidery to do some visible mending and personalizing.

>What is your current project?
I had to put them all down at the moment for school/work, but:
Primary: Commission of Maid-Sama Plushies for a friend
Secondary: Maid Ichigo cosplay from Tokyo Mew Mew (It's like 80% done and watching it sit there is so frustrating, but I have no goddamn time or energy rn)
Tertiary: Tackling my pile of project clothes. They need tailoring, mending, or flipping to make them wearable and make their way back into my closet.

I shuttle tat, its easy, but takes a lot of attention
>>
>>10665937
tatting is incredibly easy and enjoyable, check out rustikate on youtube for decent tutorials, crotatting is really related to needle tatting, so needle tatting info should get you started

i'm working on knitting my first lolita cardigan! it was near impossible to find a simple cropped cardigan pattern without any bells and whistles, so i just took my measurements, knit a swatch, and have been doing everything myself. the front pieces and back are done, working on sleeves now.

maybe once i'm done i can write up a knitting "recipe" for making something similar, because i'm not a pro pattern designer and don't really know how to account for sizes other than mine. would that be something of interest?

If you have a pattern and practice getting your stitches neat, then not too tough. But something like this is so simple if you are a beginner that every little mistake will stand out.

>>10667505
Learn to draft patterns. It isn't as hard as it seems if you follow the basic principles
>>
>>10667505
Pattern drafting. Some lolita magazines like OnS have instructions with some lines to trace but you still need some Japanese (or none but a little is easier) some drafting skills, and the money to pay out the ass for the more popular volumes with good patterns.

I actually have the pattern for something similar (although unfortunately very low quality) to this due to my e-pattern hoarding.
If you want more lolita-able patterns let me know. I have suitable patterns in knitting, crochet, tatting, a few bobbin lace patterns (not a craft I do yet though), some basic handbag and leather patterns, a handful of embroidery patterns, and some interesting applique/patchwork patterns that aren't really suitable for lolita are still really cute.

Hi everyone my grandmother just gifted me a sewing machine and i'd love to know How old is it?

it seems very old, I'd love to know what deaid it is from

(enless this is the wrong thread for that kinda stuff)
>>
>>10669806
the copyright for the machine is in the user manual.
It will also clearly mention your model number in there; google / ebay for extra parts; first suggestion is a ruffle foot.

Protips;
>always pre-wash and dry your fabric the way you will launder it in the future BEFORE cutting anything out.
>always finish edges of fabric pieces with a straight stitch or a zigzag before actually sewing the pieces together.
>always iron everything between steps of assembly
>learn some basic hand sewing skills. Your work will always look best if you do some key points by hand and not by machine.

good luck
>>
Honestly this is a dumb fucking question but do I really need special needles to knit lace? I can do basic knitting and I've crocheted lace before, but I really want to knit lace. It's delicate in a way crochet lace isn't.
I've seen needles with longer tips being advertised as being for lace and I've also seen some people recommending using wooden needles, which personally I cannot stand (I like all my hooks and tools to be metal, preferably steel). I'd like to purchase a good set of metal interchangeable needles and I'm torn between getting ones meant for lace and ones meant for general purpose.
>>
>>10669853
>always finish edges of fabric pieces with a straight stitch or a zigzag before actually sewing the pieces together.
Not correct. You are thinking of fray check. Finishing stitches should be sewn after each seam is sewn. Sew the seam and sew the finishing stitch.
>always iron everything between steps of assembly
Again incorrect. Use a steamer. Unless OP can't afford anything else, there is no reason in the current year to ever use a traditional iron unless it's for pleating or something.
>>
Has anyone lowered the waist on a high waist dress? I saw a taobao dress that I think looks gorgeous but it has a slightly high waist. I'm considering buying it but before I do I'm hoping to get some tips for altering it. I was thinking of chopping off the upper portion of the Skirt and making a plain rectangular bodice extension but is that stupid? Pic is similar, but not the same as the dress I saw
>>
>>10670932
>Again incorrect. Use a steamer.
Nta but you're just nitpicking a personal preference thing at this point. Using an iron isn't "incorrect."
>>
>>10670932
Anon is right in the sense that SOME fabrics should have their edges finished right away before assembly because they'll fray uncontrollably if you look at them wrong. If you've ever worked with silk satin or any other fabric that's floating a lot of threads, you know what I'm talking about.
>>
>>10670957
Anon that will look terrible. Just save your money and buy something that fits or make something from scratch that fits your proportions
>>
>>10670957
Where is that dress from?
>>
>>10670932
Fray check is an adhesive-related substance that can leave a rough edge. I finished the raw edges of a jacket in that stuff once and basically never wore it again after the first time out; the fray check kept rubbing against my skin and leaving marks. Zig-zagging along the edge or using a binding seam just does the job without risk of making the garment uncomfortable. I'd say fray check is okay for doing the edge of anything that will be turned over twice (think a skirt hem) but nothing where it might touch your body.
>>
>>10671069
I cannot believe that anon suggested using fray check over just overlocking or zig zagging raw edges. Some people are so lazy
>>
>>10671069
>>10671073

also using pinking shears works to limit fraying on tons of fabrics as well

Yeah it's surprisingly hard to find the right style for lolita.
This book has some really cute ideas though.
>>
>>10680181

Aw I used to peyote a lot. Double stitch>>>> single stitch because it stacks up easier, but still time consuming.

Japanese beading in general is so cute. Beading can easily look kind of grandma in a 1980s Karen way, but Japanese beading is quite simple and without the weird Karen touches.
>>

Here's a list of every single book about beaded knitting and crochet I have saved. Most have boring normie patterns but can help you with the basic techniques
You can find these free online if you visit certain shadow library type sites (I don't think I'm allowed to link to those)

English language:
>Knit One, Bead Too
>Beaded Crochet Designs (This book also has peyote stitch/bead weaving despite the title)
>Tapestry Bead Crochet
>Learn to Bead Crochet (generic title might make it hard to find. it's published by American School of Needlework, now owned by Annie's/DRG publishing)
>Embellished Crochet - Bead, Embroider, Fringe, and More
>Bead Crochet Snakes
>Bead Crochet Ropes

Japanese (I've included photos of the covers and names of publishers of these because they tend to have very generic names and sometimes go by different names depending on how the title was translated)
>Beads Knitting (Not sure of the publisher of this one. Google translate gave me "Kotomi Hayashi" for the author and "Cultural Press" for the publisher)
>Beads Crochet Edging (Nihon Vogue)
>Beads Work Motif Edging Braid (Asahi)
>Beadswork Mini Motif Pattern (Asahi)
>Handmade Beads Crochet (Seibido)

Hope this helps! Bonus: I have a book about beaded macrame called "Beaded Macrame Jewelry"

Same magazine, but the June 1982 issue. I should mention that this top is knit with ribbon/tape type yarn but I think you'd be okay with normal yarn if you used a similar weight. I've found some really nice romantic and girly designs for knitting, crochet, and sewing in publications from the 80s

I just downloaded several issues of a Russian bead magazine so I'm back with more beads. The translation I got from Google translate is basically
>follow figure 1 and weave two identical cross bases using shown technique (figure 2 shows dimensions of the base)
>sew beads on front of cross according to figure 3
>place cross bases on top of each other and sew together at the sides, add additional beads to end, and sew onto a chain

9. Pendant – Cross
Intertwine two identical bases in a “weaving” technique without a loom (Figure 1). On figure 2 the sizes of the base are shown. Then sew(?) the face side of the cross according to Figure 3. Then line both of them up (or like put them back to back same meaning) the bases of both parts and sew them together connecting them by the sides, adding additional beads as you do so. At the end sew the cross to a chain.

The GLB definitely had multiple rectangle headdress patterns but I can't recall which ones exactly.

You can make a fine rectangle headdresses without a pattern though. I mean, it's basically just two rectangles of fabric sewn together, tastefully decorated with some lace on top plus ribbons to tie it or something to clip it on your hair/wig on the bottom side, and voilà. It's one of the easiest things to make from total scratch imo.

My current project is turning a stuffed animal into a purse. It’s a really old plushie from maybe the 1970s, it was a ‘talking’ stuffed animal and had a nonworking battery and speaker inside it. There was a broken zipper on the bottom too. and i realized it can fit some stuff inside!
. I took the battery out, but had to cut up the bottom of the plushie a bit to get it out. My plan is to cover the bottom part with some cloth and re-add the zipper there.
Currently finished washing it and removed all the gross stuffing. Letting it air dry now. Will have to find stuffing for it.
It’s going to be so cute. My sewing skills are not great. I can see a button. But i think it will be good enough for this project

I'm making a taobao blouse replica. That's right, taobao, except I'm using cotton instead of the poly they used. It looks bad because it is my first project but I am so excited to finally be sewing at 25 because before I would get gaslit and accused of throwing sewing needles on the floor because "you should be searching for a man." I lived with my parents/they would pay my loans so I had no say before but I finally found a job that is related to my degree so I can finally allow myself this. I'm incredibly excited. Sorry for rambling but I just wanted to share a psychological milestone with someone anonymously

>>10688327
Please post pics when you're done or at least let us know how it turns out. This is something I've been curious about doing for a while
>>10684631
Technically you can do this, you'd be best off with a 4 way stretch knit (you could make it work with a 2 way stretch knit if you cut it so the stretch was perpendicular to your leg, but it would likely be uncomfortable), I just don't recommend doing it, because you would have uncomfortable seams on the side of your feet. The way modern hosiery is knit is in the round, so they only have seams at the toe and sometimes heel (depending on construction).
Why do you need to make your own stockings anyways? Surely you can find them in any solid color or get some printed if you wanted a specific pattern. It seems like way too much trouble for a subpar product to make it yourself

Wow anon, this is great! I didn't expect anyone to make any of the patterns I posted here so I'm glad my obsessive e-book collecting helped someone. If you don't mind me asking, how complex was this project?
>>
>>10689763
It's one of the more complex and time consuming things I've tried, but the steps are mostly repetitive and you don't need to think much in 3d except for step 2. It's a good pattern to try if you are moderately familiar with beading.
>>
>>10689700
That really depends on your needs, budget, and personal tastes, and this is a pretty broad question. You may as well ask "what's the best kitchen knife?", as each one has its own purpose and there is no single best one.
There is no one answer to this; if you're into old school, cotton velveteen is a good choice. If you want something that can be laundered easily, a synthetic would work, although I'm a bit of a tree hugger so I go to autistically great lengths to avoid petroleum based components in my sewing. If you want something lightweight for summer, a medium weight plain weave cotton, silk, or linen would be your best choice, although linen requires special care and wrinkles very easily due to the lack of elasticity of the fibers. Wool or silk gabardine would keep you warm in the winter, but these can be very expensive and also both require hand washing. Silk also is not as colorfast as cotton, especially mercerized cotton, and you may run into the issue of dye bleeding or transfer if you choose a more unstable color like red and like to wear light colored blouses underneath
>>
>>10689003
Thanks, i am going to have to find a new plushie it seems. But I will update when i find a suitable one (that is not so old! )They had used straw stuffing mixed with normal stuffing. when i took it out, it was pretty stuck and caused lots of things to loosen and rip. I didn’t notice until after, oh well

Thank you so much!

Just a small note for your future project but putting a zipper on the bottom is less than optimal since it would make it difficult to get things out and more prone for everything to fall out

In the process of crocheting this as part of my vampire costume for Halloween. Read the pattern wrong and am using size 40 thread instead of size 30. Too far in to frog it with my deadline. Think I'll be okay even though some places are a tight fit with the smaller thread. Finding the wording a bit confusing, but it got easier once I realized this pattern is worked back and forth in a "U" shape rather than simply back and forth. Also, this is one of the Clover Amour steel hooks and I just wanted to say they're great if you use a knife grip like me.
